Arte Description and History
This arte was introduced as a spell, which requires a short casting period before summoning toy hammers to drop onto all the targets. In some games, it instead drops a massive toy hammer to strike the target. If the hammers hit the enemies, they will be stunned for a short period, without failure. However, the hammers may miss its target somewhat easily, especially if the target begins moving to a different position by the time the hammers appear. In later games, the arte became a master arte that can be used as a melee attack. This form of the arte summons toy hammers that can deal damage while maintaining a small chance to stun the enemy.
In Tales of Symphonia, Colette Brunel throws four hammers at the enemy, though the chance to cause "Stun" is minimal. After the arte has been used at least 200 times, Toss Hammers that can inflict the "Poison" status will be randomly included in the hammers thrown, and if Colette is dealing Ice-elemental damage, Ice Hammers as well. Repeating use of this arte will eventually lead Colette to learning Hammer Rain. If Colette uses this arte in a Unison Attack with the master arte versions of Tiger Blade, Light Spear, or Devastation, the artes will form the Compound Special Attacks Pow Blade, Pow Spear, and Pow Devastation, respectively. If used with the spells Thunder Blade or Spark Wave, it will become Mjollnir.
